Practice Relating to Rule 49. War Booty
The Dominican Republic’s Military Manual (1980) states:
After you have secured, silenced and segregated captives, you may search for items of military value only (weapons, maps or military documents).
It is a violation of the law of war to take from captives objects such as gas masks, mosquito nets or parkas, or objects of no military value, such as jewellery, photos or medals.
